Pest & Weed Control
Pest & Weed Control
The benefits of controlling or eradicating introduced species on land are numerous. Flora and fauna are able to recuperate and recover from the damage that animals like possums can cause, and a natural balance is restored which is usually easier to manage in the long term.
- large scale bait drops
- isolated bait poisoning for introduced species
- consultative advice and reporting
- urban and rural surveys and database creation
Pest eradication projects often spans over a period of time, depending on the size of the land involved. This approach ensures the results are long lasting. Reintroduction of native wildlife can then be considered.
Treescape® has been involved in the eradication of Tussock Moth, taking responsibility of vegetation eradication for the entire restricted zone at the time of the crisis. Ground spraying and vegetation eradication was also carried out during the campaign to control the Painted Apple Moth.
Treescape® is involved in both large- and small-scale disease control and eradication programmes across the country including those relating to Dutch Elm Disease and Kauri dieback.
Some eradication projects last several months or years, and take us to some of the most remotest parts of the country in order to tackle the issue or protect the existing native wildlife from further invasion.
This specialist service area is constantly evolving and the threat is ever-changing.
